I was lucky enough to see beautiful sunsets while I was in Entebbe, Uganda, last year.
Curls and Q suggested to make a scarf in the sunset’s colours so that I would remember the sunset. And while surfing the internet one day, I ended up on Etsy … and this yarn!
Zoe’s Pendragon, from Shalimar Yarns. Isn’t it gorgeous? So of course I had to get it as soon as I saw the colours!
Did they see the sunset too? Well, it certainly saved me time from looking for the yarn.
So I had to wind it up into a ball right away. And I still like the colours; it might just work out into a nice scarf. I find sometimes that once I wind up the hank into a ball, the colourways don’t turn out the same, specially if the colour changes are too short.
I only bought one hank – I can’t remember now why I did that. I hope this one ball will be enough for a good-sized scarf. Maybe a cowl.
*sigh* … Now I have to look for the right pattern to showcase these colours! Any ideas?
